I'm 37 and I'm from New York. I've been a fan of BtVS from the very beginning. I saw the movie way back when and was overjoyed when I read about a show being greenlit.

Summary: Set after the events of the season 5 AtS series finale "Not Fade Away". Buffy finds herself drawn to Los Angeles to warn Angel of a vivid dream evoking what appears to be a dangerous unfulfilled prophecy of the entire city in ruins. But it's her rather sudden arrival that ends up being the very catalyst that has already set the battle into motion. It also wastes no time bringing her face-to-face with someone she never expected to see again. When an old enemy suddenly resurfaces at the expense of honoring a debt long overdue, everything that was, may no longer be.
